Different town but it's the same sad story for Randy and Evi Quaid.
RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that new charges against the couple are in the works by the tiny town of Marfa, Texas, where they currently reside.
The town's mayor Daniel Dunlap revealed that the town is close to filing charges against the Quaids who are hoping to open a museum in Marfa honoring the actor’s cinematic achievements.
“I have been told by my lawyers not to talk about the charges but things are ongoing although I cannot be too specific,” Dunlap told RadarOnline.com exclusively. "It is a shame because Marfa is such a welcoming place but I don't know if a long term future here will be viable for them."
The Quaids, who are about to be extradited back to California after failing to appear at a Santa Barbara Court three times over a $10,000 unpaid hotel bill, have being causing huge waves since arriving in the artist’s community (population: 2,400).
They have been doing work at their building in the middle of the town without proper permits causing city authorities to place a cease and desist order on the building. Local deputy James Davis is also suing them for defamation after Evi placed a large sign on a truck about him (she claimed he took bribes after he served them for a warrant in connection with their unpaid Santa Barbara hotel bill).
Dunlap has enlisted the help of county attorney Bart Medley and Fort Davis lawyer Teresa Todd to look into the new charges which have yet to be filed at Presidio County Court. A source says the charges are related to some of the alleged illegal works carried out by the Quaids at their building and the possible misappropriation of documents at City Hall.
